 Mixed media is all about layers of media used to create our expression on canvas or paper. Acrylic paint, papers, recycled bits of our lives: old love letters, catalogues, sheet music, text, poetry....color, line, texture... the list is endless as the process unfolds.

*Each unique-themed class introduces new techniques and ideas of how to use various materials. Like "mixed media" itself, participants come away with layers of new techniques and practices to create their own art at home.

News from Sayulita Art Retreat!

Just returned from hosting our 5th Art Retreat in Sayulita, Mexico from March 27- April 3.  Everyone got straight to work on their mixed media pieces which were created in this beautiful jungle setting. Our “studio classroom” was the patio of our Balinese casa. Each day we were serenaded by the jungle birds and enjoyed balmy weather as each new project emerged. We were happy to welcome back 7 returning artist students this year and 3 newcomers. Here are a few shots of the week. Liz Collins and I enjoyed, once again, art in the jungle with friends. 

Using analogous colors, abstract faces, acrylic paint and personal icons, we created some new jungle friends. 

Great group of creative women!
